HORACE WHITSITT IS INTERVIEWING THE BUSINESS

MEN ON A PROPOSITION TO RUN

A STREET SPRINKLER DURING THE DUST PERIOD.

CONSIDERING THE RESTRICTIONS ON THE USE OF THE CITY WATER WORKS FOR THE

PURPOSE OF SPRINKLING IT WOULD BE A GOOD IDEA FOR THE

BUSINESS MEN TO START THE SPRINKLER .

THE DUST IS THE WORST ENEMY TO GOODS DURING THE SUMMER AND IT CAN ONLY BE KEPT

DOWN BY KEEPING THE GROUND CONTINUALLY WET .

LETS HAVE THE SPRINKLER.
